Fokn Bois - "BRKN LNGWJZ"

Up & Coming

Classifying the Fokn Bois as 'up and coming' artists may not tell the whole truth - which is that anyone following Ghanaian music will likely know of them, though as SXSW 2012 presenting artists I'm certain that they're just on the verge of acclaim in North America.

This video is one of the most comical-yet-funky takes on hiphop braggadocio I've ever seen, which is in-part due to this creative hiphop duo's excellent use of pidgin (a la Femi Kuti and family) - not only bringing us English speakers into the fold but keeping us constantly surprised.
